So here's the deal: most women plan on having a child one day, preferably when it is conveinent for them. However, it is becoming more and more common for women (even young women) to experience some sort of delay when it comes to the time it takes to conceive. This "new" trend is blamed in part on the declining diet in American women, poor recollection of when their last menstrual cycles were, and the fact that women are simply starting to have children later in life than they used to (because of the desire to have an education, so kudos to those ladies!) There are some things that can assist you when the time comes to make a baby.
1.) Keep track of your menstrual cycles-this way you will know your most fertile days, also, you can over do it when trying to conceive :)
2.)Get into the best shape possible within 6 months before getting pregnant- being in shape and eating healthy helps keep blood pressure under control, and also helps decrease chances of miscarriage.
3.)RELAX-stress (believe it or not) can play a huge part in your fertility, so if you are stressed out about the amount of time it is taking you to conceive, you could actually be causing your body to stop ovulating.
Even though three steps seems too easy and insubstantial, it can make a HUGE difference on the time it takes to get pregnant, and how healthy your pregnancy is. Typically, if it has taken a woman under 32 longer than a year to get pregnant, gynecologists recommend that they see a infertility doctor to help out with the process a little bit (InVitro Fertilization is not the only way to get pregnant if you are experiencing fertility problems, there are other less risky procedures and medications that can be ordered for you).
If anyone has any questions about what I wrote, or would like to see one of the topics I mentioned in more detail, just let me know. Also, if my vocabulary is hard for anyone to understand, just tell me (sometimes it is hard for me to judge what is common knowledge and what isn't since we communicate that way at work)
Salam, take care everyone and encourage your friends to take a peek and share their thoughts with me.
